Tech leaders have identified a gap in the computer science pipeline: The labor supply for the growing tech sector is limited and lacking in diversity. If this trend continues, it has the potential to hinder growth and limit career potential for today’s students, particularly those from underserved populations.
To help fill this gap, Google has launched CS First. CS First is creating curriculum to appeal to underrepresented demographics in tech. At the same time, they’re introducing a great new way for tech professionals to give back to their communities, to pay it forward to the next generation, and to ensure a successful future for the tech industry.
Join us this August to learn about how the Google CS First team is coming to the Upstate to partner with local schools, businesses, and community volunteers in an exciting new education endeavor.
